Left accuses NYC school principal of hate

A Queens fifth grader made headlines last week after he was prohibited from giving a speech on same-sex marriage to an assembly of first through fifth graders at his school. It should come as no surprise that progressives are up in arms over the alleged restriction of free speech this student faced in what many on the left are calling ‘hate.’

Beryl Bailey, principal of P.S. 195 in Queens, New York, decided that 11-year-old Kameron Slade’s speech about marriage equality was not appropriate for the first through fifth grade audience, and the boy was instead allowed to read the speech on Monday at a fifth grade only assembly.

“When did all the disagreements in this country become hate,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Since when if I don't agree with a certain lifestyle is it hate? Or even, even if it's just that I don't want my 10 or 11 year old kid subjected to certain things before I feel they're ready as a parent, or I don't want them subjected to it at all at school, because I want to talk to my children about those things, how is that hate?”

While the Kameron and his mother have accepted the compromise put forth by the school and thanked the Department of Education for their attention to the matter, others are still not satisfied. New York City Council member Dan Dromm is now accusing Bailey of hatemongering.

New York City school’s chancellor, Dennis Walcott, is defending Baily’s decision. “It's something that the principal felt she needed to do more diligence with her parent community because of the topic of the speech itself,” he said.

The question here is not whether or not Kameron had a right to give this speech, but rather if the content of the speech was age appropriate for the audience at hand.

“Now, this kid sounds like an incredibly intelligent, mature fifth grader,” Glenn said. “But does he have the constitutional right to say whatever he wants in class to first graders? The answer is no. No, he doesn't.”

“How is it possible that that is hate,” he continued. “I had a first grader. I don't want them talking about sex. I don't care if it's heterosexual sex. I don't care. How is that hatred?”

The problem is that it is this issue has absolutely nothing to do with hatred, nor could it be considered hatred under any logical circumstance. “This is all part of the progressive effort to shut you up,” Glenn said. “Only one side gets the discussion. Any way they want it, anytime they want it, with anyone they want it with. But if you say that's inappropriate, that's hate.”

“We have to use common sense and be rooted not in the passion of the day but in the truth,” Glenn concluded. “You have to change the words. If you're a progressive, you have to change the meanings, you have to shout people down and shut them up because you can't win on principles or logic.”

“So they try to win by ending all discussion by just claiming hate. But they can't. They can't shut people up anymore because we're not going to sit down. We won't shut up. We won't be shouted down. We're awake now.”

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
